Glenda is a classic 1976 RHD type 2 bay window Devon Volkswagen Camper van with modern interior.
She seats four when driven (two up front and 2 in the back)
The interior has been modernised and includes a gas cooker, sink and fridge. There is a fold away table for eating. The pop up roof is also new. The rental includes all crockery, cutlery, kitchen equipment and a torch. The van has a carbon monoxide detector and fire extinguisher. An electric cable is provided for hook up while at a campsite. There are interior LED lights and phone charing points, The van has a full set of curtains plus a cover for the front windows so the van is completely private while sleeping.
The interior back seat becomes a rock and roll double bed for 2 adults. Glenda is most suitable for a couple. However, there is an an additional lean to tent/awning which is available free of charge for extra room for a family.
A bike rack is also available free of charge. Also for when the nights get a little chilly - a fan heater can be used when the van is hooked up to power at a campsite.
The engine is fully reconditioned 1.6 litre petrol air cooled engine with electronic ignition. You can reach speeds of up to 55-60mph comfortably giving plenty of power for the A roads.
In the unlikely event Glenda breaks down she has full RAC cover for roadside repair and relay from anywhere in the UK.
Please note I am doing a combination of WFH and also in London on some days so can be fairly flexible re drop off and pick up.
Driving a 44 year old camper van is obviously very different to driving a modern equivalent. For example, there is no power steering the brakes are pad rather than disk. For this reason, before the van is driven away I provide a driving lesson so that the designated driver feels comfortable before taking her on the road.
Free parking in a locked garage is provided for one vehicle so you can just drop off your car and go. I also offer free pick up from Farnham train station.
All you require Is your own bedding. Everything else is provided.
Finally I will provide a 25 percent refund on the net rental fee for NHS, care workers and teachers.

Richard is a very helpful and friendly host, he was flexible on pick up and drop off times and the mini test drive was a good intro before letting us loose. All in all a great experience and we'll be back next summer if we haven't bought our own before then..!
